Surface treatment of metals with plasmatechnology
The surface treatment of metals is already firmly implemented in many industrial sectors and is also urgently required. The main goal of surface treatment is cleaning, oxide reduction and pre-treatment of the respective metal. This serves in particular to achieve maximum wettability and to optimise adhesion by finest cleaning of the metals.
Using atmospheric plasma technology, you can clean, reduce and pretreat commonly used metals such as:
- Aluminium-magnesium alloys
- Stainless Steel
- Copper alloys
- Silver alloys
Practice example: Treatment of stainless steel
In the example below you can see a stainless steel plate where the left half is treated with the Piezobrush PZ2. The aim of the treatment is especially the fine cleaning of the surface in order to achieve a better wettability.
To clarify the result we use a test ink 48 nM. When applying the test ink, the increased wettability of the left side of the stainless steel plate compared to the non-wetted right side becomes very clear.
